This is classic!

A streamer broadcast a live pay-per-view UFC match on multiple platforms, including Twitch, by pretending it was a video game he was playing, as spotted by EuroGamer. AJ Lester streamed the UFC 218 match between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo in its entirety over the weekend. Lester appeared in the corner of the stream, wearing a pair of headphones and holding a controller while watching intensely and reacting to the punches as if he was in control of the action.

Hes playing with fire, but I gotta admire his dedication to the ruse, I never saw the original stream but apparently he didn't break character for the whole thing, kept up the pretense of playing it as a game the whole time
